Abstract

Through leveraging big data technologies and a quantitative and model-driven approach, we previously built an education monitoring and ranking system (eduMRS) that allowed us to change ranking factors that are used to assess quality of higher education. Taking a systems perspective, this short paper introduces an enhanced eduMRS - II that can effectively aggregate and visualize public opinions and sentiment trends on higher education services. Public opinions can be selectively retrieved from online media including tweets. This enhanced service system demonstrates that a big data based, real time, and interactive computer application possesses promising potential of facilitating decision-making of addressing the needs of customers in the service industry.
